Russian scientists develop system for monitoring space junk

Scientists from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University have developed a monitor system to follow space junk.

The system is a set of monitoring meters intended for a spaceship to ensure its safety if established on board, Rector of the St. Petersburg university Andrei Rudskoi told TASS on Thursday.

The space litter monitoring project aroused interest at the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos). Chief of the Roscosmos agency Oleg Ostapenko has promised support to St. Petersburg Polytechnic University to enable it to test the litter monitoring meters on the orbit.

Près de 200 déchets spatiaux tombent sur Terre par an (chercheurs). -Certains présentent un danger réel.

Près de 200 débris spatiaux - satellites, éléments de lanceurs - tombent chaque année sur Terre, dont certains présentent un danger réel, a annoncé jeudi à Moscou Sergueï Gaïdach, chef du Centre des prévisions spatiales de l'Institut de magnétisme terrestre.

"Le problème des déchets spatiaux est grave. Nous surveillons des dizaines de milliers d'objets en orbite. L'espace est très pollué ce qui pose des problèmes pous les activités spatiales. 200 objets quittent leur orbite tous les ans. Les objets légers brûlent dans l'atmosphère, mais si le poids d'un objet est grand, il atteint le sol", a indiqué M.Gaïdach devant les journalistes.

Space debris to be removed from Earth's orbit

Kerry Nock of Global Aerospace Corporation stated that the problem of space debris is becoming increasingly more acute every year. He said that recently one of our orbiting satellites was put out of order, and may happen again. He suggested that once nothing can be done about the debris, we should at least try to reduce its amount by removing broken equipment from the orbit.
Now debris mean mainly fragments of various satellites that no longer serve any useful purpose, but may damage the operating units, and in some cases threaten nuclear or toxic contamination when they fall on Earth.

According to the report published in October of 2009 by the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, approximately 300,000 such objects revolve around our planet.
